Oreo Mallow Clusters

Happy Mother’s Day to all of my mom and soon-to-be mom friends! I hope that all of you had a great weekend.  I spent a lot of time in the kitchen but also a lot of time outside.  The sunny and  warm weather makes me so happy.  Yesterday I got to take a long walk along the water with a good friend.  We caught up on life and it was wonderful.  Today we celebrated Mother’s Day by grilling and eating outside with family.  The fresh air is like free therapy.

Oreo Mallow Clusters

After the last chocolate cluster recipe I made, I knew I wanted to make another version.  They are so easy to whip up and so delicious.  Who doesn’t love homemade candy filled with delicious mix-ins?  So in the midst of a baking marathon, I made some Oreo Mallow Clusters in a matter of minutes.  They are milk chocolate clusters filled with Oreos and marshmallows (or in my case Peeps).  And you know what? Huge success.  It figures that this 10-minute recipe turned out so much better than an overly complicated dessert I also made.

To make these, you will need some broken up Oreos

P.S. The above picture was taken with my Dad’s DSLR, what an amazing quality difference!  I am FINALLY getting one and hopefully my blog will be prettier very soon.

How was your weekend?  Is the weather getting better where you live?

    “Peeps were most certainly harmed in the making of these clusters.”

      LOL I actually thought of your road-kill brownies when I chopped the Peeps heads off

    A perfect surprise treat for a perfect day!

    Fresh air DEFINITELY has curative properties. So does sunlight. i’m convinced.

    These sound almost TOO easy to make. That whole ten minutes thing would be dangerous. But absolutely delicious!

  8. Alexis @ There She Goes May 9, 2011 at 8:05 am #

    these totally look worth the emotional havoc wrought from chopping off peep bunnies heads :)

  9. Emma May 9, 2011 at 8:49 am #

    Congrats on the soon-to-come camera! And look at all that wine in the fridge! OoooooOOOoooOOO:)

    Weather was quite nice over the weekend here, it’s nice to see leaves on the trees. Finally.

    • KeepItSweet May 9, 2011 at 5:46 pm #

      Haha wine and chocolate might be the most important items in that fridge:-)

  10. valerie May 9, 2011 at 10:39 am #

    I need these in my life…in a big way!

  11. Linda May 9, 2011 at 11:10 am #

    Oooh, I have leftover Peeps!! I thought about making smore’s but this sounds truly delish!

  12. nancy K May 9, 2011 at 12:18 pm #

    I almost threw ot a box of purple bunny pees the other day but then realized that some awsome food blogger would come up with a creation to use them up. Thanks for the post…I will have to try this treat ASAP!

    • KeepItSweet May 9, 2011 at 5:46 pm #

      Oh make them!

  13. Jen @ keepitsimplefoods May 9, 2011 at 12:51 pm #

    My daughter would attack that in no time.

  18. Madison @ Espresso and Cream May 9, 2011 at 5:04 pm #

    I love little chocolate clusters like these. It’s so easy to customize what goes in them based on what you have in your pantry. And although I’ve never had a single Peep (can you believe it?!) these look like a great way to get your feet wet in Peep-eating. :)

    • KeepItSweet May 9, 2011 at 5:46 pm #

      Ah never? You need to try them!!

  19. Erin @ Making Memories May 9, 2011 at 6:12 pm #

    These sound delicious! I can’t wait to make these! Thanks!!!

  28. Bianca @ Confessions of a Chocoholic May 10, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    Aww the pink peeps were cut up! Haha I would totally murder them too if only to bathe them in chocolate and oreo bits. These look awesome!
    PS – a DSLR is on my wish list too!

    • KeepItSweet May 10, 2011 at 11:39 am #

      I finally got mine yesterday! I can’t wait to put it to use:-)

  29. Audrey Ellen @ My Scene and Herd May 10, 2011 at 10:52 am #

    Those remind me of my favorite truffle from See’s, the Scotchmallow. Yours look incredible, and you’re going to have so much fun with your new camera!

  30. Lauren@LYK May 10, 2011 at 12:44 pm #

    Your blog speaks to my heart :), any ideas what to sub marshmallows for? (i dont eat gelatin)

    • KeepItSweet May 10, 2011 at 6:09 pm #

      Hmm, you could do a lot of things. Maybe peanuts or peanut butter chips? Totally different but delicious.

  35. Simply Life May 10, 2011 at 7:23 pm #

    oh my gosh, those look incredible!

  36. briarrose May 10, 2011 at 7:28 pm #
